President Museveni is expected to make the announcement in his address to the nation today 18th March that schools, churches and other gathering places should temporarily close down as one of the ways of stemming the rapid spread of coronavirus at 5 p.m. 

Although no case of coronavirus has been reported in Uganda yet, the President believes that the country should take tough mitigation measures before disaster strikes.

A close source has it that President Museveni spoke with his comrade President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday, shortly after the Kenyan president had ordered that schools be closed in the wake of the rising coronavirus cases in Kenya.

It is not clear what the two discussed, however, today morning, the president summoned an emergency meeting where it is believed that a discussion regarding the possible closure of public institutions such as schools is top of the agenda.

Sources also told us that the schools are likely to be closed for a month as they monitor the situation. The measure, according to sources, will take immediate effect.

What are your opinions before the above mentioned places are closed as Ugandans?
